Polette Eyewear Blogger Opp

polette_logoEyewear Giveaway Blogger Opp!
IMG_9991 is born from a man’s vision, a man who decided to put an end to the monopole of optics. No more expensive eyeglasses. His idea? Break up the chain of intermediates and offer, through the internet, a massive selection of frames and lenses provided by his own factories.
The revolution is launched and upsets the field of French optic as we know it. The winner can choose the frame he/she wants among all Polette's collections, adjusted to his/her eyesight or for fashion.

Remote Control with My Nest, #BBYConnectedHome

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.
Have you ever heard of the Connected Home Nest Smart Thermostat before? For short, the thermostat is just called a Nest. The Nest allows you to control your thermostat from your couch without having to get up or even when you're away from the home. Have fun with your spouse and set it to be too cold/hot.

For someone who loves and lives with technology, the Nest is something I hadn't picked up on my own. I'd been eyeing one for the longest time but hadn't bought yet. I think I may be glad I waited as this one is the new 3rd generation version, which is thinner, sleeker in design, and allows for a bigger, crisper display than the prior 2nd generation version.

Installation of the Nest was a breeze. I've installed thermostats before so I had a good idea of what I needed to do. The key thing to know is you have to make sure you connect the colored wires to the right connectors. Each color has a special meaning. Connect them wrong and the furnace/air conditioning won't work right.

Tactical Tiedown @ Walmart

Here's an interesting new product available at Walmart. Check out the video to see what it can do.

Tactical Tiedown is a wonderful new product that replaces clunky tie-down ratchet systems with a simple and elegant solution from Hitt Brands, now available at Walmart stores nationally! Everyone is familiar with the “Chinese finger trap” — when you pull on each end, it tightens to an unrelenting grip. That’s how the patent-pending Tactical Tiedown works! Simply pull Tactical Tiedown feed rope one way to tighten to a grip that solidly holds up to 700 lbs. (with an amazing break strength of 2,100 lbs!). To release, pull the rope the other direction. NO ratchets, NO clamps, and NO knot tying for incredibly secure tie-down with NO hassle. Perfect for lawn equipment, camping gear, truck bed hauling, motorcycle transport, boat applications and so much more.

Playing with the LIFX Smart Lightbulb

"What's with the funky looking lightbulb?" you might ask. This is the LIFX Smart Lightbulb. I got to play with it for a couple weeks and here are my findings. 

Ignoring LIFX for the moment, what is a smart lightbulb? If you're not familiar with the concept of a smart lightbulb, it is one that connects to your in home WiFi network. You can then control the lightbulb from an app on your phone instead of from a light switch. This one happens to be multi-colored, too.

Reserved Parking Driving on Energi

As my Driving on Energi test drive month is nearly at its end, I thought I would post about my favorite part of the event. Reserved Parking. While there are no laws that say you have to observe the signs, many places I've been to recently have parking reserved for electric vehicles or those with low emissions.
